About Me

Ofsted Registered Childcare Provider - Inspected 2016 (GOOD)

A warm, welcoming and spacious home for children and babies to learn, develop and play. I have a calm, caring and approachable personality.

Monday to Friday 7:30am – 6:30pm. Flexible hours to suit if required.

I have a wide variety of toys and learning aids for activities including a large garden for outside play. Babies and toddlers learn through play and activities where they can explore and engage their development, growth and enjoyment, where they can feel respected and valued and safe. I appreciate parents are the most important people in their child's life therefore I discuss all aspects of your child's care with you ensuring regular feedback of your child's activity in my care.

I am able to give your child the individual attention and support they need as well as allowing them the enjoyment of interacting with other children.

I attend local play groups, parks and local libraries. I organise outings to the farm, museums and other places of interest for children

Before and after school care is available to local school

Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

The childminder cared for my son from the age of 4 to 9. SmartiKids Childcare setting gave my child a home feeling after school time. The childminder created an environment for children to feel loved and cared for like their own family. In the childminder’s care, the children learn to respect each other and to be kind to the younger ones. She gives them healthy and warm food after school which my son loved and on many occasions asked me to find out about a certain recipe. He was very happy there and always looked forward to going to the childminder after weekends and school holidays. On some occasions, he was disappointed to be picked up by me from school if it was not planned as he wanted to go to SmartiKids Childcare.

At SmartiKids Childcare have fun and also develop through a variety of educational activities. The childminder keeps a good rapport with parents and keeps them informed of their children development and behaviours.

My son was very sad to leave SmartiKids Childcare. We are still in contact and my son wants to visit the lovely childminder regularly.

An experienced, trusted & friendly Childminder who provides an outstanding service. Highly recommended!

I am extremely grateful that Auntie H was able to childminder three of my children of varying ages over a period of almost four years. When I first found her services I was in the process of placing my 1 year old in a nursery, but wasn’t really keen on the idea because of how young she was and the type of nurturing she was used to.

I am so glad I halted my plans and opted to place my little one with Auntie H. My daughter was always happy attending this childminding setting and spoke positively about her day and the activities she undertook for the day. My daughter was able to engage in both play and learning activities which have prepared her well for reception.

I would recommend this setting if you want a more personal, home from Home approach to caring for your child.

This childminder cared for my daughter from the age of 4 years till 9years. She has cared for my daughter in a lovely and clean home environment. My daughter was happy being cared for by her. This gave me peace of mind because I knew my daughter was being looked after so well. My daughter always loved her cooking after she was picked from school. As a mother you always want to meet your child at the end of school day. My daughter was happy to be picked up by her childminder because she felt the love and care. She is a caring and loving childminder always going an extra mile to make your child happy. The kids in her environment respect each other and work together completing their homework. My daughter really misses her and the lovely cooking. I highly recommend this childminder.

My daughter has been with her childminder since she was 3 months old and has been cared for really well. Her home setting is warm and welcoming she has eveything a young child needs to develop and grow with confidence. She has a wide variety off toys and resources and learning aids that my child has access to including a very large garden for playing outdoors. I have been so happy with the care provided, this childminder always has time to have a chat with me about how my daughter’s progress and she sends me lovely text messages about my daughter’s day to make me smile. I never worry because I know my child is happy.

My daughter really enjoys the home cooked meals provided which I have tasted and they are delicious! My daughter is always eager to go to her Childminders home and looks forward to the outings and planned activities.

SmartiKids Childcare teaches all the children to be kind, caring and respectful to each other which I see all the time when I drop of and collect my daughter. This Childminder is gentle and kind making her a good role model.

A well respected and trusted Childminder who provides excellent quality childcare. I highly recommend her!
